A Night in Montmartre (sometimes written as Night in Montmartre) is a 1931 British mystery film directed by Leslie S. Hiscott and starring Horace Hodges, Franklin Dyall, Hugh Williams, Reginald Purdell and Austin Trevor. It was based on a play by Miles Malleson.

It was shot at Twickenham Studios.[1] The art director was James Carter.


When the owner of a large cafe in Montmartre and a notorious blackmailer is murdered, suspicion points at young artist Lucien Borell who owed him money. Things look worse for Lucien when his father arrives and, fancying himself a criminologist, uncovers evidence that accidentally makes his son look even more guilty. On his second attempt, however, he is able to unmask the real culprits.
